  • Andrew West has created a a dual-width Unicode Han font in Song/Ming style (宋体/明體) with G-source glyphs used in Mainland China. The font is still under development, and has incomplete coverage of the main CJK unified ideographs block; he provides a chart at the download link showing which ranges have been completed. The completed ranges include coverage of Hiragana and Katakana for Japanese.

  • This is a set of multilingual keyboards for use with Latin alphabets as well as quite a few other scripts. An online keyboard is very helpful when you don't have to type a lot of text. It makes it possible to type within a webpage, copy and then paste your text into a working document. This kind of keyboard is probably not suitable for everyday usage. A regular, installed keyboard might be more suitable for a language that is being constantly typed.
